    Default Browser Protocols

    When you want to stream a windows media player file you would request the file with the following protocol.. &#039;mms://&#039;. With Real Player files its &#039;rtsp://&#039;.<BR><BR>How does the browser know how to use these protocols?

    Default RE: Browser Protocols

    They do it with mirrors.<BR><BR>Or<BR><BR>They look at the mms://, rtsp:// bit and realise that it is not a http:// kind of page. I know that that is how I would do it.

    Default It's either a plug-in or already...

    ...coded into the browser itself. When you install RealPlayer, it installs a little plug-in which IE can use to accept the rtsp:// stream and then decode it - or something like that anyway.<BR><BR>Oliver.
